Buster Keaton Playing Ukelele!

Post by Kitty » Sat Jun 09, 2018 11:20 pm

Here's a clip from a film called Doughboys. It's so interesting, albeit a teensy bit annoying because of sound quality. :D https://youtu.be/cu3p6PBix64

Hey, that's pretty good. :D I couldn't tell what it was the soldier in the foreground was playing like a cello.

That two-person technique, with one person chording and another drumming on the strings, reminds me of that short of The Big Noise from Winetka by the Bob Crosby band. Have I posted that before?

I don't know which clip you mean, so maybe not.

It doesn't show up in the search, so I guess I didn't. What a great sounding band this was! And what a marvelous voice Bob Crosby had.
